"Investigators were called to the scene and learned that several individuals were involved in a shootout within the parking lot. All had fled the scene before the arrival of officers and no injuries were reported to authorities," Lt. Mike Hanel said in the press release.

As the investigation spanned into the weekend, Dickinson Police investigators were able to identify the individuals involved in the shootout. After a search warrant was granted by the Southwest Judicial District, the Southwest Tactical Team was deployed to a residence in the 200 block of G Street at approximately 1:15 p.m. Sunday.

Other agencies aiding Dickinson Police officers included the Stark County Sheriff's Office, North Dakota Highway Patrol, North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation, Southwest Narcotics Task Force, Dickinson Area Ambulance Service and Dickinson Fire Department.

According to the press release, arrest warrants for terrorizing and reckless endangerment — which are both Class C felonies — were also granted for Mayfield, Haney, Aseph and Brown, who are believed to be connected to the shooting.

"All individuals involved are known to one another and there is no belief that the public is in danger," Hanel added.
